Rams' Nickell Robey-Coleman received death threats from Saints fans after no-call

Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman was at the center of one of the most consequential blown no-calls in NFL history. The defensive back leveled the Saints’ Tommylee Lewis before Drew Brees’ pass arrived, but he astonishingly was not called for pass interference. The Rams went on to win in overtime and reach the Super Bowl.

Saints fans were justifiably upset about the no-call. Some, though, crossed a line and directed that frustration at Robey-Coleman.

In a recent feature from Bleacher Report, Robey-Coleman admitted that he checked his social media after the game. That’s when he found threats ranging from burning down his house to attacking him at the airport.

Via Bleacher Report:

Notifications tripped over themselves by the dozens. Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. All of his accounts were blowing up with messages on a continuous loop and, no, they were not all congratulatory. There was a Saints fan promising to burn his house down. Another vowing to “f–k you up” at the airport. Another telling him he better leave the city ASAP or he “might not see tomorrow.” There were countless death threats from what he presumed to be fake names.

Robey-Coleman said that he didn’t alert the authorities about the threats. His reason?

“Wolves don’t concern themselves with the opinions of sheep.”

The entire story, which included a shot at Tom Brady, is worth a read.
